I've been playing Monster Hunter Tri for only a couple months now. Been beating myself up for ignoring it when it came out, surprised at how I couldn't have been excited for it after rewatching commercials on YouTube.
Though I'm new on the forums I've been researching and playing so I have a bit of experience. Me and my Lil Bro are at HR 32 now, had to recruit some very High Rank ppl online to beat Jhen Mohran, but we've made it this far mostly with eachother.
It'd be nice to get a few more friends before the servers and stuff go down for Ultimate (which I'll hopefully be able to get come March) I know back when I got my first taste of Four player take downs I had a blast, even if it was just Barroths, and although having a partner makes the online a little easier it be great to have more people to play alongside.
